RRP Rule For Public and Commercial Buildings
Posted on February 04, 2013
Many thanks to Paul for bringing this to our attention. If you don't respond with your input, the RRP Rule is on its way to include public and commercial buildings.
Please respond to the Request For Comments. The EPA is currently in the process of determining whether renovation, repair, and painting activities on public and commercial buildings might also create lead-based paint hazards. For those activities that do create lead-based paint hazards, the EPA intends to develop certification, training, and work practice requirements as directed by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
The EPA has opened a comment period to allow for additional data and other information to be submitted by the public and interested stakeholders. This comment period runs through April 1, 2013. For more information on this request for public comment, including instructions for providing your comments, can be found in at the Federal Register.
If you don't take the time to submit your comment, perhaps you don't have the time to complain about the bureaucrats that makes decisions you do not agree with.
